It is important to know how to contact the Starlink support team once you subscribe to their service.
Just like any other internet service, things can go wrong. Whether it is a connection problem or you just want to inquire about billing, the company offers channels you can use to reach out to its support team.
However, contacting the company support service is not as straightforward as you may think.
There is no phone number, no live chat, and even the email option isn’t specifically for Starlink.
The best option to contact customer service is via the company mobile app. We will walk you through using the mobile app and other options to contact Starlink customer service.
Reasons for Contacting the Starlink Support Team
Specific reasons for contacting the Starlink support team evolve as the service grows. Currently, the common reason most users contact Starlink may include:
Installation and Setup Assistance: SpaceX designed Starlink for do-it-yourself (DIY) installation and setup.
While most users manage to set up the service without much trouble, some usually get stuck and contact the company.
Connection Issues: Just like any other internet service, you can experience connectivity issues such as intermittent service, slow speed, and, in the worst-case scenario, complete internet outages.
The disconnection may get so common that you may want to contact the Starlink support team.
Billing and Account Management: You may want to contact the support team for account management and billing inquiries or to address payment and subscription-related issues.
Technical Support: Technical issues with the equipment or software may force you to seek assistance from the Starlink support team. Technical issues can be hard to troubleshoot by yourself.
Equipment Replacement: If you have damaged hardware, you may request repair or replacement from the support team.
General Inquiries and Information: You may contact the Starlink support team for general inquiries about the services, the policies, and the updates on the development of the network.
Starlink Support Documentation
Starlink has a support page where they try to address common issues people raise. Several topics on the page address things like Starlink installation, setup, billing, obstruction, and more.
Before contacting the company, just browse the several topics on the support page and see if they address your issue. The page is available on both mobile apps and web platforms.
How Do I Contact Starlink Support Service?
The best way to contact the Starlink customer support team is via the Starlink mobile app. If you prefer handling your business on a computer rather than a mobile, a website method is a great alternative.
Contacting Support Service Via Starlink App
Step 1: Install the Starlink App
In addition to serving as a communication channel, you can use the app for several other things. You can use it to align the dish, adjust your router setting, monitor your network status, and get a guide to troubleshoot a range of common problems. So, it is a must-have.
If you haven’t installed it, visit your app store, search for the Starlink app and click “Install.” The installation is free.

Step 2: Open the App and Search the Support Section
Once you download the app, please open it and scroll down to the support tab. Tap the support tab to display a support page with several topics and frequently asked questions. Search through the list and find out if the company addresses your issue.
Step 3: Create a Support Ticket
If you are not lucky to find your problem addressed, you may want to reach out to the Starlink support person.
At the bottom of the topics is a tab that says, “Don’t see what you are looking for?
Contact Starlink Support.” Simply click on the tab, and it will prompt you to sign in if you haven’t.
Once signed in, you can complete the form and send your support ticket by tapping the send button.
The request form is simple, with only a subject, a space to write about your issue, and a section to download a photo.
The response should take just a few days from submitting the support ticket. However, it would be best to be patient, as some customers have reported waiting up to three weeks.
Contacting Support Service Through the Website
You can create a similar support ticket from the Starlink website. First, you have to log into your Starlink account.
Then go to the Starlink website, and you will see a drop-down menu indicated by three vertical bars in the top right corner of the page.
You should click on the menu and then select support.
This will lead you to a page with troubleshooting options. Browse through the troubleshooting options and see if there is any that can handle your problem. If there is none, contact the company support team.
Here, you must click the support topic that closely matches the response to your issue. This will display a question, “Did this answer your question?” then a thumb up and thumb down icon.
If the topic did not deal with your issue, click thumb down. It will display a message window where you can fill and submit customer support tickets.
The form is similar to the app’s, with just a subject line, a text box, and a section to upload a photo.
The official channel for reaching the Starlink customer support team is via app or website.
If you have trouble getting helped through the two options, email the complaint resolution team at SpaceX.
Please write a short, clear email about your issue and submit it to [email protected].
This is not an official Starlink support email, but many users have used it successfully.
However, it is not a guarantee. SpaceX is a large company, and many emails may slip through the cracks.
That said, always try to put something on the subject line that may catch their attention. Putting phrases like “Starlink consumer complaint” can do.
Does Starlink Have a Phone Number?
Starlink doesn’t have a working public phone number. Sometimes, a number (1-855-753-2495) appears on Google search results as their direct number.
This is a Subaru Starlink support line, and it is not in any way a SpaceX-affiliated phone number.
Subaru infotainment system shares a similar name to SpaceX Starlink but they are different companies.
The only Starlink support method is the ticket system. If you must speak to someone via phone, include the request on your support ticket and wait for Starlink to call you.

Starlink Customer Support Reviews
There has been a mixed reaction to Starlink support services. While some users are happy with the customer service, others show dissatisfaction.
The lack of customer service numbers is especially a big disappointment to many. Other users also feel that troubleshooting topics on the support page offer generic answers, not factual solutions to their problems.
However, whether Starlink customer support service is good or bad depends on who you ask. From our point of view, the support is average.
The Final Thought
Contact the Starlink support team via a mobile app or web platform. However, the two methods don’t offer instant responses. You will have to wait a few days to get feedback.
That said, Starlink customer support is still lacking. SpaceX core business is launching rockets.
The aspect of internet service providers is fairly new, and the company likely hasn’t expanded its customer base enough to cover this.
We feel that soon, things will be much better.
